2 Marsham Street, London / Apollo House, Croydon
Salary Range: £42,709 - £48,984
Are you a communications specialist with strategic communications experience looking for a new challenge? Do you want to apply your expertise to some of the most important issues facing the UK?
We are looking to recruit a talented strategic communication manager with excellent organisational skills to join the Home Office Communications Directorate on communications activity to support the delivery of our key priorities that include immigration, visas, modern slavery, border security messages and knife crime.
Successful candidates will display strong stakeholder management skills and be able to develop and maintain close working relationships. You will have experience of being able to reach audiences with credible, useful communications that builds trust and engagement. This is an exciting opportunity to support on Home Office priorities that reach across Whitehall and beyond.
You will be expected to support the development, planning and implementation of strategic communication programmes that deliver measurable change. You will therefore need to demonstrate experience across the communications mix, presentation skills, personal impact and project management ability.
The Home Office offers excellent career progression prospects and invests in ongoing professional development. Successful candidates will be entitled to a competitive pension and benefits package, and have access to extensive professional support networks, such as the Government Communications Service, just as you would expect from a large, progressive employer like the Civil Service.
We are an equal opportunity employer and value diversity and inclusion at the Home Office. We are committed to creating a welcoming, inclusive workplace where all our people are able to bring their whole selves to work and perform at their best.
